Nope - we are who we thought we were #DennisGreenTo me this game is a good indicator of whether we have actually improved since Virgin Islands, or if we are still largely incapable of winning on the road.
This is a team we should beat with the talent we have, but so was BC, Belmont, Buffalo, ODU...
Can CKE improve what is an absolutely terrible road record up to this point in his HC career and earn his 3rd conference road win?
We have 9 road conference games, and this is arguably the 4th most winnable game - so truly should show whether we have a chance to go .500 on the road in conference (which I would take as a significant step forward and be happy with).
Bc it's nba ball. We don't have nba guys. Moreso, all the offensive freedom given to college players is good at times, but I think it hurts their defense in the long run. We can't guard a team put together over the summer while having most if our core back. And we old. All these losses make our coaching look bad.English is a language I just don't understand. No clear meaning offensively or defensively.
In all honesty, our "experienced" players just aren't that good. Who has shown up EVERY night? No one. It's a crap shoot to see who, if anyone, will play well. If two or three play well at home we win. If no one steps up on the road, we lose. Just a fact of life we have to live with.Can't even beat a shitty St. Bonny team in a down year with all of these experienced players. Just dumbfounding.
Agreed. But Josh has to take it upon himself to realize he's the stud, our superstar, our Batman. He HAS to show up every night whether it be on the road or at home. The Robins/supporting cast can differ each night and complement him but we have to have our stud show up each night and play out his mind.In all honesty, our "experienced" players just aren't that good.
